Lewis Hamilton's new plant-based restaurant races into the West End as The Crown Estate signs six innovative food and beverage concepts for Regent Street
The Crown Estate has continued to grow its food and beverage offering with six new signings to Regent Street, further diversifying the street’s line-up of exceptional restaurants, cafes and bars.
Heddon Street has seen a number of openings, including restaurant residency 10 Heddon Street (pictured above) by Chris Leach, formerly of Kitty Fisher’s, Pitt Cue and Petersham Nurseries, and David Carter of Smokestak, bringing cured meats and fresh pasta dishes to Heddon Street’s foodie quarters.
Kwant, a new cocktail bar by Erik Lorincz, opened beneath the iconic Momo at 23 – 25 Heddon Street and popular Momo has itself undergone extensive recent renovations. The brand is also set to open Mo Diner later this month on Heddon Street, taking the American diner concept and putting a Mediterranean spin on it with both the menu and design of the new restaurant space.
Elsewhere on the Regent Street portfolio, innovative meat-free burger concept Neat Burger is opening its first outlet at 4 Princes Street. Neat Burger sees five-time FIA Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton collaborating with hospitality organisation The Cream Group, and other investors including UNICEF Ambassador Tommaso Chiabra. Neat Burger aims to transform the way people see plant-based food by appealing to any individuals, meat-eaters included, who want to eat delicious meat-free dishes that are sustainable, healthy and ethical.
Further new offerings include Honi Poke at 39 Margaret St, bringing ‘full-on Pacific flavour to London’ with its Hawaiian poke bowls and The Hagen Project, an espresso bar for coffee connoisseurs offering freshly roasted coffee delivered with old school service and charm at 27-29 Swallow Street.
In addition, Ergon London is expanding its Greek Deli + Café at 15 Maddox Street with the additional move into 13 Maddox Street. Ergon brings traditional and authentic food to London with Dimitris Skarmoutsos, Ergon's executive chef leading the new generation of pioneering Greek chefs in redefining traditional Greek mezze.
Katerina Mercury, Regent Street Senior Asset Manager said: “We are excited about the recent growth of Regent Street’s food and beverage offering, and that existing restaurants have chosen to continue their evolution together with The Crown Estate. With 2019 marking Regent Street’s 200th Anniversary, we are continuing to work in partnership with our operators to positively shape the future of the street, and to respond to consumers’ changing tastes and trends. It is this rich blend of retail and restaurants that makes the area so compelling and ultimately so successful.”Back to Media & Insights
